Turning back the clock to the good old days and aiming to dispel 21st century January blues – that’s the mission of Stevenage’s Lytton Players as the new year grinds into gear.
The Players traditionally open the year with an evening of music hall entertainment, with song, dance and speciality acts presented in a cabaret style and introduced by a loquacious master of ceremonies.
This vivid taste of a night at the theatre in Victorian times was a fixture of the TV schedules for many years, with Leonard Sachs the chairman of The Good Old Days,
Taking on the link man duties at the Players’ Vardon Road base this year is Keith Pitts.
The company has been staging the music hall for more than 50 years and promise that this year’s production will feature all the traditional favourites, including a marvellous melodrama and a host of songs, chorus numbers and comedy sketches. The curtain goes up for the first time on Thursday, with performances continuing until Saturday.
